No no not that kind of cheating. I’m talking about kicking it old school with good old math problems.
Nowadays it seems that kids have it so much easier than everyone. Every generation seems to have the same comments as we.. ahem.,. get older. Technology is booming and the kids are huge consumers of it. And it’s great for them. Nowadays kids have access to learning resources that put them on the fast track to make careers before they even leave their teen years. Nowadays kids are growing up faster and smarter with the convenience and access to technologies that would make us old farts’ heads spin.
Think about how things were twenty years ago. The net age was just really starting. Graphics and technologies were a thing of a new and shiny.
Take the time machine and go to the present day. There’s kids making more money than their parents off of Youtube hits. Teenagers are getting recruited for programming jobs.
This ap was made to help cheat at math:
There have been several times when I have found out about new technologies but rarely do I get to a point of saying that I wish I had this as a kid because this might have changed my life (or at least those grades in Algebra).
With Photo Math all you do is aim your device at the math problems and you obtain the answers. It is essentially a digital cheatsheet ap for your phone.
I remember back in the days of college where you were allowed to use phones during the test. I am amazed at the thought of that now. Our devices are the tools for magic and masterminding and… cheating aps.
But don’t get too too excited. At least not just yet. Photo Math is still in its infancy. It’s only currently available on iOs and Windows based devices with Android users having to wait until next year to get their hands dirty.
Damn I guess I’m stuck doing my own math then. Oh well there’s always next year.
Now the real question of the moment is: does it help solve Common Core problems? The jury is still out as of this posting…
